Oatmeal is, by far, one of my favorite breakfast options. Besides the healthy carb factor, it happens to be the perfect vehicle for just about any combination of fruit and/or nut. Add in some cinnamon, maybe a squirt of honey or maple syrup...perfection. But oatmeal takes time. And store-bought packets, while much quicker to make, aren't always the nutritious breakfast they claim to be. Plus, they can be expensive.
So, here's a healthy living hack for you: Freeze a giant batch of steel-cut oats in a muffin tin (or two).
Two cups keeps me full.
Once you go from bag to bowl, it only takes about a minute per cup.
My choice? Raspberries and blueberries.
The recipe I used called for maple syrup and cinnamon, otherwise I would have added some combination of the two. Or maybe just some honey. Other combos I like:
1) Honey and chopped almonds
2) Banana and peanut butter with a few chocolate chips
3) Kiwi and peanut butter
4) Pumpkin pie spice and pecans
Seriously, because of this hack, it literally takes me five minutes to create a piping hot, delicious and nutritious breakfast. #obsessedwithfrozenoatmeal
